    I've already done that & it still will not close.

  • sbennett1123 Dec 09, 2009

    Yes, I would need the tape mechanism part & a referral for repair.

  • sbennett1123 Dec 09, 2009

    I'm trying to remove all the screws to how to replace the part. Does the tape run from the back to the front?

  • sbennett1123 Dec 09, 2009

    If I purchase, is that I'll receive because Nextronics does not supply a picture of the part?

Hi,
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.
Thanks.

    ===================================================================

    Check below image that shows how to apart camcorder.
    I would recommend to download service manual of DCR-HC26 from HERE for small fee, it has all technical info, help to apart, part list etc.
    First LCD section will be removed, then front cabinet, then battery compartment, then camera lens assembly, then main circuit board and then you can take out tape mechanism.
    Be Careful handling flexible wires/ orange strips that are easily damaged like paper.
    Thanks.

The tape can be moved without battery. apply 5v DC to the tape drive motor (a small motor at the bottom of camcorder) you'll see two small semi-hemispheres on top of motor. you'll need to figure out which one is positive by trial and error. nothing bad will happen as long as the voltage is not more than 5v.

Repair handycam touchscreen


It should be the first screen you see when you turn it on, if it has not been set. This is an old camera, so the internal rechargeable battery that saves this info may be dead.
here is the manual in pdf if you don't already have it.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.
